Ethos & Vision


As a Church of England school, we pride ourselves in promoting a strong Christian ethos within a caring and supporting environment. We believe it is important to develop Christian core values that will impact the way we live our lives, both at school and in the wider community as God intended.

'I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me'
Philippians 4 v 13

  • We have a vision for everyone at Bridgemere to be lifelong learners; trying their best, enduring tough times with hope and courage and being open to new experiences.
  • We believe that God helps us to grow, especially through challenges, we therefore value resilience.
  • In order to flourish, we aim to support every child and adult with the diverse challenges of everyday life.

'A small rural school with a big Christian heart'

Our visions and values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident and happy members of the community.
We nurture and maintain strong links with the Church and the local community. We give children the opportunity to experience what being a Christian is, in a warm, friendly family where everyone feels safe.

Our Church, our Faith

We gather together for collective worship every day and ensure it is inclusive, invitational and inspiring.
Our worship has a distinct focus each day. Since September we have had virtual worship across the school allowing all children in each class to continue to have that feeling of togetherness.
Our weekly timetable has changed slightly due to Covid, but we are looking forward to new links with the Reverend Alison Fulford who starts in her post here in the Parish in December. We are hoping that she will be able to continue to develop that strong link between our school, church and community.

  • Monday – The Headteacher leads the worship which is linked to our school Christian values.
  • Tuesday – Children meet in their Key Stages and focus on events that are happening around them using Picture News or link with the theme in Understanding Spirituality
  • Wednesday – The children in their Key Stages follow up and lead their worship from yesterday
  • Thursday – The Headteacher leads the worship which is linked to our school Christian values or develops a spiritual, moral, social or cultural focus
  • Friday – We come together to celebrate and praise. We take this opportunity to think about our school community and reflect on how, with God's help, we can reach our full potential. We share in the joy of all our achievements and take this time to be thankful for the many talents God has given us.

Our Christian value for Spring Term 1 is 'Hope' and we are looking forward to embracing all of the community of Bridgemere in allowing them to write their hopes for 2021 to put on our 'hope tree' in the school hall. We feel that this value is particularly significant for the beginning of 2021 and we will be looking for ways that we can be 'hope carriers' to those around us.

Our Christian value for Spring Term 2 is 'Forgiveness' and as we move into the time of Lent we will be thinking of how we can have 'A heart that Forgives'.

Our Christian value for Summer Term 1 is 'Love and Kindness'.

We regularly walk through the beautiful Doddington estate to hold services at St John's church. Parents are invited to attend. St John's was built in 1837 for the Delves Broughton family of Doddington

Our Vicar

Rev Alison Fulford is the vicar of the joint benefice of St James' Audlem, St John's Doddington and St Chad's Wybunbury. We are looking forward to building strong links with her as she starts her ministry here in 2021. It has been lovely for her to share with us worship on line this past half term and we look forward to her coming into school hopefully in the near furture.
